Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Place paper baking cup in each of 12 regular-size muffin cups. In medium bowl, mix 1/2 cup flour and the brown sugar until blended. Cut in 1/4 cup cold butter, using fork or pastry blender, until mixture is crumbly (do not overmix). Stir in pecans. Set aside.

    In large bowl, mix 1 1/2 cups flour, the granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt until blended. In medium bowl, beat eggs, sour cream, 1/3 cup melted butter and the vanilla with whisk until blended. Mix egg mixture into flour mixture with spoon just until moistened.
  • 3
    To assemble, spread 1 tablespoon batter evenly in bottom of each cup. Stir streusel to redistribute nuts; spoon 1 tablespoon streusel over batter in each cup to cover. Push down into batter. Divide remaining batter among cups; sprinkle remaining streusel over batter.

    Bake 28 to 32 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from pan to cooling rack; cool 10 minutes. Serve warm.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Stir streusel mixture occasionally as scooping to ensure even distribution of pecans throughout.
  • tip 2
    Mix just until dry ingredients are moistened. Overmixing causes tunnels and a tougher texture in the muffins.
  • tip 3
    Unlike most muffin recipes that tell you to fill the muffin cups two-thirds full, it’s important to fill the cups in this recipe to the top for best results.
